I chose health and social care because If I lose interest or change my mind I can work in a different area of work but I would like to get into nursing.

Why not then just apply to do nursing rather than waste 3 years studying a degree that won't result in you becoming a nurse?

Studying hsc at uni would get the OP to work in a hospital environment. Either way, the pathways the same if they study HSC or nursing though nursing is more in depth.

the OP could work in a hospital environment as a band 3 without doing a 3 year degree and getting into a lot of debt for a degree that does not lead to any professional qualification or any profession that will require a registration.
op states that they want to get into nursing. doing that degree will take 3 years, then applying to do nursing which is another 3 year degree. so 6 years for a career that could be achieved in 3 just seems a little long winded.

I don’t know which hospital employs someone with minimal qualifications especially on a band 3.

To make you aware, to work in a hospital environment full time one is required to qualify as a nurse irrespective of the duration considering they require a pin and a certified registered centre to be acknowledged when they are in full term employment.

Its a long way for medical trained individuals as it’s a complicated but rewarding job at the end of the day.

You only have to be a registered nurse to work in roles that require you to be a registered nurse. There are plenty of non registered roles, that deliver direct care that people can work in with minimal training, both in the hospital and in other environments that care is delivered in. Non registered care roles, such as band 2 or 3 HCA roles are ideal experience for people to use to support to get onto a three year nursing undergrad course.
